It has been a great week, with lots going on! Thanks to all those who came out to Math Mayhem on Tuesday night. It was awesome to see kids enjoying math through all the different math games being played!

We also celebrated our learning and all that we are accomplishing on Tuesday afternoon by having a popcorn and movie party. Your child was asked to reflect on the year so far … what have they learned that they are good at, what are they still working on, and what do they want to learn how to do. It’s always great for them to look at what they have accomplished and how far they have come.

We also had our kickoff assembly for Jump Rope for Heart. It always gets them excited about skipping and having a healthy heart. Envelopes went home with your child today also. Your participation in this fundraiser is always so appreciated!

Well, it has been another great week. We have spent a lot of time playing with magnets and learning about what attracts and what repels, which has been a lot of fun for everyone. We also started a new unit in Gym, indoor hockey … this has proven to be a very exciting and enjoyable unit for everyone. This week we had a lockdown drill.
